OnTheRoadToHonesty for Kids

On the Road to Honesty for Kids

Why should you support this campaign?

Trust me, I speak by experience: most families with children and schools -if not all of them- would highly benefit from this On the Road to Honesty for kids campaign even though many parents and educators do not realize it...yet.

I know it because I was raised in one of these really honest families. But it absolutely did not turned out that way. During my childhood I really suffered too many years trapped in my lies while nobody knew about it, and especially not my parents. One day I ended up at the hospital in really bad shape and that was my wake up call. And later the story repeated itself with my own children. 

Children Dishonesty is rampant in schools & at home: it's reaching epidemic level. And we can only see a small portion of it.
To give you an idea of what's going on, here are some worrying surveys results from high school children themselves that Michele Borba, a worldwide recognized parenting expert, reported here:
  • 1 in 3 boys and 1 in 4 high school girls say the stole from a store over the last year.
  • 21% admit they stole something from a parent or relative; 18% say they stole from a friend.
  • 92% of children believe their parents want them to do the “right thing” 80% say they lied to their parents about something significant.
  • A majority of students (59%) admitted cheating on a test during the last school year with 34 percent doing it more than two times.
  • One in three say they used the Internet to plagiarize an assignment.


Let's stop this dishonesty epidemic and let's stop what does not work with our children: "The Recurring Honesty and Trust Talk" that we improvise each time. It is not only not working well, it's also very often counter productive. Moreover, it's annoying for children and it's annoying for us, the adults! 

Instead, let’s teach honesty and trust to children in a fun, smart, efficient and empowering way.

Even the most well intented parents and adults can only see or discover the tip of the iceberg of our children lies. 

Let’s help millions of children make bright honest choices about honesty ….. instead of telling lies that will lead them to suffer, in their head and in their heart, just because they don’t know how to do it differently and because they don't dare to tell it to their parents or other adults. 

Remember: honesty, integrity, credibility, trust, reputation will play a major role in your child's future success in this "all connected world".  
Their (dis)honesty and reputation will follow them online wherever they go for their entire life and will impact how things will turn out for them personnaly and professionnaly.

So let’s help millions of parents and educators guide and teach children to be bright about honesty... for the rest of their life.

    August 13, 2015
    Dear amazing supporters,

    This Thunderclap campaign to promote a new way to teach honesty to children is going to be an exciting journey as we'll go from zero to millions of social reach.

    Of course crossing the finish line will be fantastic to witness.

    But with this type of journey great things will happen along the way. We'll discover new people, new information and new events that will contribute to make steady and sometimes extraordinary progress at once.

    And as we progress we will all enjoy the momentum and the victory of the different milestones reached.

    Today thanks to you and in just a few hours we have crossed the first 10 000 social reach milestone. YEAH!
    So spread the message of the Let's Raise Bright Honest Kids, because it really matters and people will enjoy being part of it.
    Contact now a friend and ask her or him to support us too.

    That's how it works: getting one friend at a time on board. Friends add up and gradually it creates a snowball effect.

    Thank you all!
    Speak to you again at 50 000 social reach.
    Kindest regards,

And I am the Editor of the "Let's raise bright honest kids" campaign and also the co-author of the On the Road to Honesty book, for children, families and educators. Please share this campaign and be part of this honesty for children movement along side many other amazing people like you. Thank you!
